Yup x Push

Hello Yupstes,

Summary

We propose the Push Protocol be integrated with Yup.

Decentralized notifications through Push establish a direct line of communication between Yup and its investors.

Background

Push is the first decentralized communication protocol that enables any dApp, smart contract, or backend to send push notifications tied to user wallet addresses.

Currently, the Push protocol powers notifications for 70+ projects, such as Ethereum Name Service (ENS), Decentraland, Uniswap, Pine Protocol, and DoinGud around the Ethereum ecosystem and soon will be deployed to all the EVM-compatible networks.

A brief history of Push Protocol

We started building Push in January 2020.

While interacting with decentralized applications, we realized the lack of a notification mechanism that can notify users or wallet addresses about important events, updates, and actions. As a result, many essential events requiring user attention are missed entirely.

Push tries to solve this with its Push Notifications service. To do this efficiently, the notification is stored and treated like a JSON payload, and this is transformed as per the rules of the different carriers when the notification ends up reaching them.

The JSON payload can differ with payload types, and this ensures the flexibility of the content, as well as the data, storage interpretation, and delivery.

Push allows users to be in complete control of what services they get notifications from and impose rules on the services, which include spam protection for users. This means that notifications are treated as a social feed rather than a piece of information.

Why integrate Push with Yup

Making the best use of technologies at hand to enhance user experience is the essence of innovation in Web3. Many protocols and dApps currently rely on emails or social media tools like Twitter, Telegram, and Discord to communicate with their users.

Implementing Push’s decentralized notifications creates a direct channel between Yup and Users. Users will be able to receive notifications and respond immediately.

All notifications can be delivered in rich media format, resulting in a more engaging user experience. Here are the exact use cases for which users of the Yup platform will receive notifications;

  • Updates to users
  • New products released

Sending out notifications for these events will be very beneficial for users in staying up-to-date with their current positions and taking appropriate actions.

Next steps

For: Yup will leverage the Ethereum Push Notifications Service to serve decentralized notifications to its users

Against: Do nothing
